Senate Majority Leader Kindiki Kithure has told off his critics saying he will not engage in political wrangles as he has his eyes on a bigger post come 2022.
In a statement, Kindiki (pictured) said his political detractors should look for other businesses to do since his political destiny is well cut out and unstoppable. Speaking at a fund raiser in Maara, Tharaka/Nithi county, the Majority Leader said he will not engage in petty politics engineered by people who want to cause wrangles.
“They want us to start insulting each other across the fence, I am a clever man and I will not do that, when that time comes, we will compete with men in this country and you will see what I am really made of,” he said.
For now, Kindiki said he is concentrating in building and developing Tharaka/Nithi to become a better place for the residents. Develop county “But we do not want to start talking about it now, those years are still far, let us first develop Tharaka/Nithi,” he said.
Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wa, who had accompanied the Majority Leader, said he was shocked at the happenings during the Presidential visit in Meru where Kindiki was sidelined, urging the Majority Leader not to give up.
There has been supremacy war  between the Kindiki and Meru Senator Kiraitu Murungi over who is the political kingpin of the community, with the Meru council of elders ordaining Kindiki as the Ameru spokesman.
